Opioids Not For?
Opioids are not designed for long-term pain management, for emotional or mental pain, or for healing physical injuries. In fact, because they are so powerful and addictive, the CDC states that three days or less is usually enough, and that taking opioids for more than seven days is rarely recommended or productive. In 2018, Chicago passed its own law limiting opioid prescriptions to seven days for city employees. Fifteen states have also implemented similar limits.
